    With just about 20 years of riding experience, acquiring my snowboard instructor certification, and sharing my expertise with riders alike, I am stoked and blessed to have truly found my forte! I started shredding when I was just 7 years old and I never feel more alive than when I am out there on the slopes!

    Thumbs Up For Ryan!
    I knew absolutely nothing about bindings going into this. Ryan asked followup questions about my boarding style to figure out a good fit for bindings. He not only provided curations, but also provided a screenshare video talking through the features of each curation. He was also very responsive in every question I asked. Thanks Ryan!

    Ryan was very helpful
    Ryan provided some of his personal background while getting to know me as a rider. He asked the right questions and provided guidance when I asked for clarification or didn’t know a term. His recommendations were great and spanned different price points (all within my range). I chose the Jones Mountain Twin board and NOW IPO bindings.

    Matt's experience with Ryan
    Ryan was awesome. He really helped answer all my questions and helped talk me through what would be best for me considering my riding style, experience, wants, and needs. You can tell he knows what he’s talking about with how he answers questions. He established rapport after talking about his background and how he tests gear and his experience as a rider. He helped me understand the logic behind buying new gear and how to maintain it for it to be good for a long time. I know that boarding is something I want to do for a long time down the road and Ryan helped set me up with gear that will help me do just that. Thanks Ryan!

    Ryan is the best!!
    I'm new to snowboarding and was not sure where to start when it came to buying new gear. Ryan was not only knowledgeable but also very mindful of choosing items within my specified price range while keeping each pick very quality. Additionally, he included a description of each product he picked for me, which was very helpful in deciding what to purchase since I'm not familiar with all the different brands and materials. This made such a confusing and time-consuming process much easier. He was also very communicative and kept me updated throughout every step of the curation process... literally above and beyond! Such a chill and great person all around. Thanks again Ryan :)

    Ryan was amazing!!
    I’ve not ridden in many years following a severe neck injury while snowboarding, so I wasn’t sure where to start with all the new gear out there. I was buying a new setup for my son and Ryan knew exactly where to steer me! He was super responsive and patient with me while I was making decisions. Highly recommend curated.com and Ryan if you are lucky enough to work with him!

    Ryan made this process so fun!
    Sometimes shopping for new gear can seem daunting because of all the specs, the sheer amount of products available, and trying to match value to price. But working with Ryan made this feel human. A custom made video with his insights on all the gear showed he is truly knowledgeable about the products, and he was able to really grasp what I was looking for in his recommendations. If you are lucky enough to have Ryan as your expert; know that you are in really good hands!

    Jordyn E's experience with Ryan
    I have been wanting my own snowboard gear for a while now but had not idea where to start! Took an online quiz with curated and immediately got wired to Ryan. He responded right away and took into account my riding style, preferences, and my budget! He curated an awesome video with all the gear I needed and more! Just sent in my order with all the gear he picked out for me. Can't wait to hit the slopes with my new board! Thanks so much, Ryan, you went above and beyond!

    Super helpful and knowledgable!
    Very new to the sport and wanted a board that was forgiving but could use a little more once I get better. Ryan was very responsive and knowledgable. He made the whole process go so much smoother. Truly thankful for Ryan and Curated for having this service!
